BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tree House Brewing Company

Style: American Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.80%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
The art and science of brewing continues to captivate us - every opportunity to experiment in search of how to improve our beer, and to further our understanding of what ultimately makes a beer enjoyable, enriches our spirit! To that end, Curiosity Forty Four combines several of our very favorite American and Australian hops, including Galaxy, Citra, Simcoe, and Amarillo in the kettle and heavy doses of Citra and Galaxy in the dry hop. The result is a heavily tropical Double IPA dripping with fruity hop oil saturation. Utilizing a new technique, the majority of the carbonation in Forty Four developed naturally in the fermenter during conditioning. The result is a uniquely soft body and tight carbonation lending supreme drinkability and flavor that ignites the senses and invites the next sip. We hope it can contribute in a meaningful way to a special moment in your life.

As a stand alone this beer was solid but sometimes you just have to blend you own beers and these Curiosity Fourty Four really enhanced the beers they were mixed with.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing this can.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy golden straw hue with a nice head that fades to leave nice lacing.

S - Aromas of light citrus, big pithy notes, light vegetative. Some weird stale hop aromas as well.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with nice light bubblegum notes. Faint citrus notes, orange peel, light tropical notes. Finish is malty with a a lingering bitter finish.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, little fluffy.

O - Overall this was a super underwhelming beer. Hops were really underwhelming and the malts were heavy.

Serving Type: can

Canned 1/12/18, thanks to rudzud

Pours a huge fluffy creamy head, 1 finger fades semi slowly, tons of sticky lacing, semi hazy clearer than I expected, orange color, great head but appearance was OK.

Nose some citrus, stone fruit, tangerine clementine citrus, plenty of doughy wheat malt, toasted, feels like it dropped off a bit, faint tropical maybe pineapple but barely, faint mango, fair pithy maybe vegetaly thing

Taste about the same, some pith and rind, citrus, orange juice but the pulp only, creamy wheat, very creamy malt, oats too I think maybe, little mango and tropical but barely, some rind, papery pulp, finishes a bit more bitter, pithy, pulp

Mouth is med bod, decent but ligher carb

Overall OK, doesn't seem to live up typical TH beers, maybe it fell out.
